Couldn't switch to requested monitor resolution


I'm getting the error mentioned in the title. Full details:

Switching to resolution 1920x1080 failed, trying lower one

All resolution switches have failed

Screen: could not switch resolution (1920x1080 fs=0 hz=0)

This is how my shortcut looks.

"E:\KSP 1.0.2 Career\KSP.exe" -popupwindow -force-opengl -adapter 1

That should work. I added the "-adapter 1" after first experiencing the problem, but it didn't help.

Is your monitor connected with a HDMI cable?

Some people suggested that OpenGL + HDMI cables don't play well together on this thread:

OpenGL Mode Doesn't Work

My own personal experience with HDMI cables and other games suggests that a HDCP handshake 'micro-lag' tends to wreak havoc with resolutions on windows.

If that's your case, you can try using a DVI cable, if your monitor and graphic card supports it.
